Starring – July


In 2008, a group of five friends who met at Oberlin College started a project they called Starring with modest ambitions to play loud and wild prog rock in late-night headlining slots around Brooklyn’s DIY circuit. The band’s first recordings (which appeared only as hand-made cassettes and a small run of LPs on screen-printed vinyl), were described by critics at the Village Voice as “kraut” or “circus” punk, apt names for music that was exploring ways to join punk minimalism with proggy, psychedelic maximalism.
